Marques de Murrieta Dalmau Reserva Rioja 2016

Marques de Murrieta Dalmau 2016
Tasting Notes: 

Dalmau is a limited production, single-vineyard wine, full of shades and intensity, which shows the most modern side of our winery. It has a complex and velvety nose, with an explosion of aromas of wild fruits, dark chocolate and mineral notes, elegantly combined with the creamy toasting of its ageing in the new French oak barrels. An elegant and extraordinary wine which impresses in every way, with body and harmony, of magnificent balance which creates a powerful wine.
